Given the environment in Rochester, there are a variety of factors involved in the way you approach your heating and air conditioning. And when it’s time to think through buying a new heating and air conditioning system, it’s easy to make a quick decision and risk ending up with a system that doesn’t wholly address all of the needs that come with the climate.
Here’s a quick and simple breakdown of how to determine what will work best for the current climate in Rochester or a new climate if you plan on relocating.
The southern region of North America normally has warmer weather for a great deal of the year, so not all heating and air conditioning equipment is ideal for that climate. These warmer climates usually utilize heat pumps and air handlers.
- Heat pumps handle both your cooling and heating needs in one system. Even if you don’t think you need the heating functionality of a heat pump, it can help you get the greatest energy efficiency out of your system. Plus, you never know when there will be a sudden cold front that cools things off a bit.
- Air handlers make sure the air inside your home is being circulated. Whether it’s the warm air in colder months or cool air in the warmer months, air handlers make sure your comfort is always a high priority.
If we talk about the weather in the northern portion of North America, it’s safer to go with an air conditioner and furnace to handle your heating and air conditioning needs. With temperatures getting frigid more frequently, gas and oil furnaces can run regardless of the temperature outside, leaving you comfortable in your home.
Being sure your home is comfortable throughout the year means taking a little time to understand the heating and air conditioning needs of your area. Not sure what is right for you?
